Rated 5 out of 5 by DVS60 I LOVE the light roast! Due to the current trend of strong bitter coffees being popular, a smooth light coffee is hard to find. Thanks Gevalia!!
I really love the Light Roast! I tried every store in the area that carried Gevalia brand and found that they no longer stock the Light Roast. Instead, they favor the stronger bitter coffees thinking that that's all people want anymore. WRONG!! I prefer smooth classic coffee flavor without bitterness that may upset my stomach. So I called Gevalia and asked the rep what was their closest match to Light Roast that my grocer may stock. She said the Traditional Roast would be closest but explained to me the great June online offer that gave me free shipping on two boxes. So I ordered the Light Roast and am so glad I did. Almost every morning I tell my wife after the first sip " wow, that's great coffee". No more experimenting and wasting money buying coffee that I don't like. Buying a bag of unknown coffee off the store shelf just to try it is the same as "buying a pig in a poke", as they say. As long as they still make the Light Roast available, I am a customer for life! Thanks Gevalia also for your very helpful customer service reps!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blackdog7 Whole bean, best ever
The Gevalia whole bean light roast is THE best coffee ever. In the whole bean form we can grind it the way we like and have it totally fresh every day. The flavor of this coffee is just what it smells like. Not bitter at all. Light, almost floral notes grace the pot. As I said, The best we've ever had, and we looked for a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wimpy Smooth rich flavor
The Gevlaia Light roast has a smooth rich flavor. I grind enough Gevalia Light roast coffee with my burr grinder for each pot of coffee. I enjoy aroma of the beans grinding. This fresh grind give a consistent brew off coffee.My ratio is 1.5 oz of coffee to 10 cups of spring water.

The coffee has a wonderful taste while at the same time it doesn't irritate a sensitive mouth or stomach! Hallelujah!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Msmyway It tastes the way ground coffee smells!
I have drunk this coffee for over ten years. I primarily love that I have no bitter after taste, and it's the closest coffee to that luscious aroma when you first open ground coffee, or just after grinding your own beans.
If Gevalia ever discontinues the Light Roast, I will stop drinking coffee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Figgie Light Roast is My All-Time Choice
Gevalia's Light Roast is becoming more and more valuable to me. The trends have gone to dark roasts and flavored coffees, so, light roast coffee is harder to find -- except at Gevalia. I'm particular about the way I begin my day: Gevalia's Light Roast does that just right.

My husband and I have different tastes in coffee...the Gevalia light roast fits both our tastes. Clean and smooth taste, always fresh and consistently good!
